MBTI Type: ISFP
Rosalie is compassionate and considerate, but also firm in her opinions, and straightforward when asserting herself. She tells Monroe one thing about her past relationships and then says she will never discuss it again. When her family has a problem with her that escalates into an argument, she flees from the house to compose herself and does not want to talk about it. It took her many years to admit she was in jail, and that’s why she missed her father’s funeral. Rosalie does not open up easily or confide even in Monroe, and has a natural distaste for anything she considers offensive (such as their own kind being racist toward their mixed marriage). Unlike her husband, while she is willing to offer help, she also knows when to shut off the phone and be not-available, to prioritize their relationship. Under stress, she becomes assertive and quick to react. Unable to piece together clues about who might have taken Monroe, she snaps at Juliette and does not try to figure out why this is happening — she just wants it to stop. She prefers to abide by the rules set for their kind, and allow the authorities to handle problems that she feels they should not get involved in – when trouble arises in Portland, she “knows who to call” for help, and does it – judging the individuals as too out of control for the police to handle, and essentially, sentencing them to death according to the rules of their kind. She is objective and sensible, and tries to work her way through situations rather than react to them (pointing out they need more medicine to fix the zombies, they need to streamline the process, and wondering if they could weaponize it in breathable form so people could breathe it in rather than needing individual shots). Unlike her husband, she has no interest in the past. She keeps nothing that reminds her of it, and is amused by his Si-ish need and desire to have everything in its place and talk lovingly about his ancestry. Rosalie, meanwhile, is willing to throw out things they both hate. In her more reckless past, Rosalie became a drug addict and wound up in jail for shoplifting. She does not often theorize for fun, but instead applies her insights and deep knowledge of herbs to specific situations. Rosalie is often concerned with the future consequences of their decisions, and any potential backlash it might arise against them.

Rosalie is everyone’s friend, a long as they are not trying to kill her. She make time for them and helps them out, whether it’s a homeless kid who has just tried to steal from her shop (out of pity, she lets them go), or Adalind needing support as a new young mother (Rosalie tolerates her phone calls day and night) or Juliette or Nick needing her emotional support. She is always there, to help out, and offers almost immediately. But she an also become quick-tempered and violent under stress, moving toward 8 behaviors, and she doesn’t like to think about her mistakes — they weigh too much on her, and that’s all negative (2s hate being negative, especially about themselves). She feels guilt for not helping out around the house and going off and doing her own thing when her father died. Her 1 wing has extremely quick opinions based on the moral right or wrong of a situation and will often burst out with her views on whether something is inappropriate or not. She does not like anything that alienates, hurts, or otherwise marginalizes people. She can and will lay down her own rules, turn people into the Vessen Council for disobeying the rules of their kind (showing themselves to humans, trying to kill other Vessen, or attacking the Grimm), and refuse to talk about things that she doesn’t want to face from her own past. She is also at times self-recriminating, anxious, and focused on what is “wrong” in a situation.
